Circle Meeting, Guest Speaker Holly Greenland

October 4, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Our guest speaker in October is Holly Greenland, a self-published author and content writer, currently undertaking a study investigating the shared characteristics of self-published authors through a PhD at Kingston University.

Holly self-published her debut novel “Murder on Maternity” through Amazon’s KDP platform in 2020 and recently co-authored a guide to democratic engagement as a commission for the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA).

Before returning to academia, Holly worked across the public sector, including at the BBC and UK Parliament, building over fifteen years’ experience in market insight and communication strategy, as well as content writing, production and publishing. She continues to freelance for the charity and public sectors.

Holly will share her personal experience and insight in self-publishing, and why she chose to explore how personality types, demographics and other characteristics may (or may not) influence an author’s chances of success. The session will also include some initial findings from the study, which gathered information from over 800 authors. The final goal of this research is to build profiles of different types of self-published authors to support writers of the future to plan their approach, investment and goals when self-publishing to increase their chances of success.

Murder on Maternity is available as a paperback, or on Kindle, from Amazon.

You can find out more about Holly on her website: www.hollygreenland.com

The meeting will take place at 7pm on Wednesday 4 October 2023. Everyone is welcome.

The meeting venue is the Taliesin Arts Centre (downstairs from the main auditorium), Swansea University Singleton Campus, Swansea SA2 8QD. There will also be a zoom link for those who can’t attend in person.

If you would like to join the meeting, please Contact the Secretary.
